rapid response with adam peacock

The sporting match that shaped my life is… Australia vs Iran, World Cup Qualifier in 1997. Slightly sadistic, as Australia missed out on qualifying for the 1998 World Cup, but this was the match that truly drew me in to the sport of football and what it means. My ultimate sporting hero is… Sir Bobby Robson – a brilliant football manager and human being. There is a good quote from football writer George Caulkin about him: ‘Hate withered inside him. It had no fertile ground on which to grow.’ When I am commentating, I feel… anxious, so as not to get anything wrong. Buzzed, thanks to the coffee. Fortunate, because talking about sport isn’t really work. The A-League players to watch are… I will go one old, one established and one kid: Miloš…

role call with jennifer aniston

Born the daughter of actors John Aniston (Victor in Days of Our Lives) and the late Nancy Dow, it was clear that Jennifer Aniston was always destined for the screen. Starting with parts in low-budget movies and TV series, it wasn’t until the now 52-year-old joined the Friends cast in 1994 that her star began to rise and she leapt from sitcom darling to A-lister with ease. FRIENDS (1994-2004) Seasons 6-8 Starts Saturday May 1, weekends from 12.30pm, ENCORE from 8.30pm on FOX COMEDY [115] and watch the complete series On Demand “It was funny, it was interesting, and I had never read anything like it,” Aniston says of the Friends script.
